5.1 integrated pre/pro/amplifier?
would love to see an all in one solution for home theater to replace my processor and 100lb 5 channel amp

seems like an untapped market. AVRs that actually sound good.  

any chance they are working on this?

B. "The best: Oppo 203&vanity 8 channel into Devialet Expert Pro into Quad full range electrostatics (see in surround with very high quality sub

C. Wait until Devialet will couple the expert Pro with the Phantoms in surround. When? Don't know, but it will come.


D. Very very new and available spring 2018: Oppo 205 into Smyth Realizer a16 ($2.000 plus taxes) into

2. Devialet Pro into shielded loudspeaker cable (; do it yourself) into Woowee audio converter ($499) into Stax SR009 headphone.

Brand new: surround sound into a stereo headphone: really..... look on the internet. From Ireland and you don't believe it.
